Aroma is roasty and cocoa dominant, with a touch of smoke and licorice. Flavor is decadent and chocolate dominant. There's a little dark fruit, adding complexity to the profile.

This was actually the bourbon barrel version although I wasn't getting much of the bourbon. The stout is a big beer, but never really feels heavy. Solid black with a short, but dense cap of dark brown foam. The flavor has lots of roasted coffee in it. There are also notes of chocolate and smoke mixed in. A very dry imperial stout. Not nearly as sweet as most for this style. A good beer nonetheless.

Hammerheart Olaf the Stout. Rye malt, oak-aged Imperial Stout, 9% ABV.

Solid blackness, with a lush dark tan head, lasting long and leaving lace. Beautiful.

Aroma: Has it all going on. Deep, dark, massive malt, flavors of char, molasses, espresso, chocolate, and peppery whispers.

Taste: Thick, rich, mouth-filled texture. Floods the mouth and tantalizes the tongue. All those flavors found in the nose unload on the palate. All manner of dark, rich flavors fall out, the chocolate, the toffee, all ending on a pleasant dry note. Great balance, perfect attenuation, with a lovely bittersweet finish. This has everything I want in a stout, imperial or otherwise. One righteous stout form Hammerheart. Mmm. I'll say it again: mm. Wait, one more: mmm, mm.

and here are the words from the brewery:

Named after the brutal Norwegian king who ended the Pagan-era in Norway, Olaf the Stout is a rye stout with distinct malt character, hopped with Cascade and aged in Oak. It's color is as black as Olaf's heart.
